An informative sampling focused on herbs and tea with an occasional sprinkling of fairy dust and a glimpse into family activities too. The contributions to this blog is the combined effort created by the sisters of The Rosemary House and Sweet Remembrances.
There are many reasons why this is one of our favorite times of the year, but in particular, we are most happy to see the early spring violets open with the warmth of the sun. In the tea room, we love to garnish with them as they add such a pop of color and delight to whatever tea time treat they are gracing. Most tea room guests will first ask 'are they edible' before wholeheartedly chomping down on the violet while a few others will timidly nibble on a petal and there are always a few that will carefully pluck the flower from the food and gently set it aside on the plate. Where do you stand on sampling fresh edible flowers? (Click on the photo to enlarge it!)
